Ju Riker is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Germany. Besides shooting for a major hospitality chain full-time, he enjoys taking his camera to the great outdoors (along with a questionable food-lens ratio). When he rediscovered the beauty of his rural birth town, he started to incorporate his musings into the frame rather than the whole scenery itself. That might explain why his photos have often been described as emotive and dreamlike. After all, his soft and minimalistic style aims to induce a meditative space for the heart. Ju’s work has been featured worldwide from exhibitions in Germany, Australia, and Singapore to band merchandise and staff-picks on art websites. He holds a Master of Arts in Media Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Geography. Also, he takes spicing up his life quite seriously – cooking with no less than 2 chilis, that is.
